Relax America, we now have an official national security strategy.
President Obama delivered a long-overdue national security strategy document to Congress Friday, emphasizing diplomacy over military power and warning against American over-reach in world affairs.
The 35-page policy document released yesterday tweaks our previous strategy of Leading From Behind® (LFB). You may recall that the primary tactic of that successful strategy was dont do stupid stuff. As that proved inordinately more difficult to implement than we had HOPE-d, weve augmented it with our new strategy of dont do anything. Its an extension of our popular wait and see attitude towards non-existential threats.
The Two Fat Ladies (RIP, Jennifer and Clarissa) Wait; Something Will Happen strategy
Or in Big Guys own words: The challenges we face require strategic patience and persistence. Which seems appropriate enough as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and Obama puppet, Susan Rice, has informed us that we are not facing an existential threat.
Still, while the dangers we face may be more numerous and varied, they are not of the existential nature we confronted during World War II or during the Cold War.
Of course neither Susan nor Barry seem to think that Israel is facing an existential threat from Iran either so I must conclude that they dont think existential means what I think it means.
Anyway, the new strategy document in part shifts the focus:
from destroying the Islamic State group to a comprehensive effort to degrade and ultimately defeat it.
Something that Big Guys LFB strategy was inordinately incompetent at so maybe this new Strategic Patience thing will work out better. If not, I guess we go directly to Plan D, Conscious Uncoupling.
Oh wait, weve already tried that.
And if that doesnt work I guess we all have to go into group therapy:
So everybody: cross your fingers and HOPE that our Strategic Patience works out.

It’s all the result of a misunderstanding. He asked a rational member of the military what he should do and the response was “don’t do anything, stupid.” He didn’t hear the comma.
The epitaph on the Democrat Party will read; Don’t do Nuttin! aka Don’t Worry-Be Happy!
Easy for him, he’s got a nice warm bunker stocked with Kobi beef and other necessities somewhere under Washington DC.
For me, not so lucky.
Makes sense. He utterly failed at “Don’t do stupid s*&t”...
Anything you do can get you killed, including nothing.
